Art as Experience stands alone as one of Dewey's most complex and perplexing works of his later period.

The prose is lucid in parts but dull in others and at times the argument can be difficult to follow.

This is not a work to be studied thoroughly and then put back on the bookshelf; rather it is a work to be visited and re-visited like a well spring of ideas.

I still haven't got through the whole text, nor do I expect to any time soon. That said, it is deep, insightful, and frustrating.

Recommended to those with a good understanding of pragmatism and Dewey's work and ethos. Also worth reading in this vein are the works of Tom Alexander: he does a great job of explicating and indeed elaborating Dewey's views on aesthetics, experience, and action.
